Introduction to Volcanology
Erouscilla Joseph, University of the West Indies
The course will introduce students to Plate tectonics and volcanoes; including the processes that takes place at active volcanoes (eruptive mechanisms, effusive and explosive volcanism); methods and instrumentation ...
Geological Applications of GPS Geodesy
Guoquan Wang, University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez
This course provides an overview of the major space geodetic techniques and focuses on the theory and practice of the Global Positioning System (GPS). The course also provides hands-on experience using GPS data to ...
Howell Bosbyshell, West Chester University of Pennsylvania
Determination of the sequential development and the forces involved in the various structural features of the earth.
Angela Moore, Guilford College
An introductory structural geology course that includes the study of stress and strain, rheology, qualitative aspects of brittle and ductile deformation processes, and descriptive analysis. Tectonics is also ...
Structural Geology (EAS 425)
Kyle Fredrick, California University of Pennsylvania
Conventional Structural Geology course with a primary focus on recognizing and measuring structure. Considerable time is spent on graphical analysis of structures (3-point problems, stereonets, remote and field ...
Microstructure and Rock Rheology
Whitney Behr, University of Texas at Austin, The
This course focuses on microphysical processes of deformation operative in the crust and upper mantle, with an emphasis on distinguishing these processes using microstructural analysis.
Geologic Structures and Map Interpretation
Genet Duke, Northeastern Illinois University
Determination of the attitude and thickness of inclined strata and their bearing on outcrop patterns; preparation of geological maps from given field data; and interpretations of aerial photos, topographic maps, ...
Jack Loveless, Smith College
Introductory structural geology
Elizabeth Goeke, Salem State University; Elizabeth Goeke, Vassar College
Structural Geology course that focused on how theoretical knowledge of the brittle and ductile behavior of a wide-range of geological materials can be applied to real-world problems.
Structural Geology and Tectonics
Steve Hurst, University of Illinois at Chicago
Junior -senior level course introduction to structural geology and tectonics
Martha Growdon, SUNY College at Oneonta
An introduction to common structural features-folds, faults, foliations, lineations, unconformities, geologic contacts, their geometry and origin. Examination of basic concepts of stress and strain; laboratory ...
Katherine Boggs, Mount Royal University
This is a typical introductory course to Structural Geology. Because the course is small, I'm able to interweave lecture and labs and also to take the group on a weekend field trip through the Canadian ...
Active Tectonics and Urban Geology Field Trip
George Davis, The University of Arizona
Teaching of Active Tectonics provides context for examining contemporary deformation of the earth's crust as seen in regional examples and in the context of data and information drawn from regional tectonics, ...
Sarah Titus, Carleton College
This is a pretty standard upper-level Structural Geology course.
